Climbing is an awesome full-body sport that requires both spirit and body. Whether in a climbing hall or along a via ferrata, every step and grip can be practised on climbing routes in the region. In nature, one is usually alone and can concentrate on the sport without distraction.
In the holiday region of Wipptal there are many opportunities for those interested in climbing: via ferrata in Obernberg, Vals and Gschnitz, bouldering walls in the Altereralm area of the Valsertal, the Peter Kofler fixed-rope route (C) in St. Jodok and the Ilmspitze fixed-rope route in Gschnitz (C-D) as well as in the indoor sport facility “basecamp” in Matrei and the climbing hall for nature lovers at JUFA in Steinach.
Many climbing modifications and moderate-level crags have been made for families and hobby climbers and grip distances designed with children in mind. There are also opportunities for alpine climbing in the side valleys for professional climbers, for example in Valsertalkessel around the Geraer Hütte with famous peaks such as Olperer, Schrammacher, Sagwand and Fußstein.
We would like to inform you that climbing is only recommended with the necessary safety equipment. Safety equipment can be rented at the climbing center "basecamp" in Matrei.
